Short Take: Kohl petitioned for Net liberty

An international group of civil liberties organizations has petitioned German chancellor Helmut Kohl to speak out against the German prosecution of German CompuServe representative Felix Somm, who was indicted by local prosecutors for distribution of material illegal in Germany. The Global Internet Liberty Campaign organized the petition, which cites the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights in its plea against Net censorship.
